In this video, we casually explore the underworld of YouTube's comments section -- namely, the scam comments, and primarily those that live on Telegram (although this used to be common on WhatsApp). The Telegram scams are rampant on YouTube; it's likely you've seen them, and although we're doing everything we can to ban emojis and phrases they commonly use, they continually evolve. The actual scam itself is something that most people haven't seen though, so at the end of the day one late night at work, we decided to play around with one of the scammers. It was surprisingly difficult to get scammed, but we did manage to lose some money.

Links to Amazon and Newegg are typically monetized on our channel (affiliate links) and may return a commission of sales to us from the retailer. This is unrelated to the product manufacturer. Any advertisements or sponsorships are disclosed within the video ("this video is brought to you by") and above the fold in the description. We do not ever produce paid content or "sponsored content" (meaning that the content is our idea and is not funded externally aside from whatever ad placement is in the beginning) and we do not ever charge manufacturers for coverage.
